6. False, since a rational number cannot have

denominator of zero. In fact,

7

0

is not a number

at all because we cannot divide by 0.

7. False, because 25 5, = which is a positive

integer.

8. True; 2 is an irrational real number.

9. False; we cannot divide by 0.

10. False, because the natural numbers are 1, 2, 3,

and so on, and 3 lies between 1 and 2.

11. True

12. False, since the integer 0 is neither positive nor

negative.

Problems 0.2

2. The procedure works because multiplying a list

by a number is the same as multiplying each

element in the list by the number, adding a

number to a list has the effect of adding the

number to each element of the list, and

subtracting one list from another is the same as

subtracting corresponding elements. The plots

match.

Then area = 800.

(2w)w = 800

2

2 800 w =

2

400 w =

w = 20 ft

Thus the length is 40 ft, so the amount of fencing

needed is 2(40) + 2(20) = 120 ft.

2. Let w be the width and 2w be the length.

w w

2w

2w

The perimeter P = 2w + 2l = 2w + 2(2w) = 6w.

Thus 6w = 300.

w = =

Thus the length is 2(50) = 100 ft.

The dimensions are 50 ft by 100 ft.

3. Let n = number of ounces in each part. Then we

have

4. Let n = number of cubic feet in each part.

Then we have

9n = 765

n = 85

Thus he needs 1n = 1(85) = 85 ft

Hence w = 1, 5. But w = 5 is impossible since

one dimension of the original plot is 4 m. Thus

the width of the pavement should be 1 m.

0.015x + 1500 = 1440

0.015x = 60

x = 4000, so 20,000 x = 16,000. Thus the

investment should be $4000 at 6% and $16,000

42. Let q = number of units of product sold last year

and q + 2000 = the number sold this year. Then

the revenue last year was 3q and this year it is

3.5(q + 2000). By the definition of margin of

So that the margin of profit this year is not

greater than 0.15, we choose q = 15,000. Thus

15,000 units were sold last year and 17,000 this

year.

43. Let q = number of units of B and

q + 25 = number of units of A produced.

Each unit of B costs

1000

q

and each unit of A

costs

25 q +

Therefore,

1500 1000

1500q = 1000(q + 25) + 2(q)(q + 25)

0 = (q 100)(q 125)

q = 100 or q = 125

If q = 100, then q + 25 = 125; if q = 125,

q + 25 = 150. Thus the company produces either

125 units of A and 100 units of B, or 150 units of

A and 125 units of B.

where r is the radius.

2

( ) a r r =

b. The domain of a(r) is all real numbers.

c. Since a radius cannot be negative or zero,

the domain for the function, in context, is

r > 0.

2. a. The formula relating distance, time, and

speed is d = rt where d is the distance, r is

the speed, and t is the time. This can also be

written as .

d

t

r

= When d = 300, we have

300

( ) t r

r

= .

b. The domain of t(r) is all real numbers

except 0.

c. Since speed is not negative, the domain for

the function, in context, is r > 0.

d. Replacing r by x:

300 = q

At a price of $18.50 per large pizza, 300

pizzas are sold each week.

b. If 200 large pizzas are being sold each

week, q = 200.

200

40

p =

p = 26 5

p = 21

The price is $21 per pizza if 200 large

pizzas are being sold each week.

c. To double the number of large pizzas sold,

use q = 400.

400

p =

p = 26 10

p = 16

To sell 400 large pizzas each week, the price

should be $16 per pizza.

Problems 2.1

1. The functions are not equal because f(x) 0 for

all values of x, while g(x) can be less than 0. For

example,

2

( 2) ( 2) 4 2 f = = = and

g(2) = 2, thus f(2) g(2).

2. The functions are different because they have

different domains. The domain of G(x) is [1, )

(all real numbers 1) because you can only

take the square root of a non-negative number,

while the domain of H(x) is all real numbers.

3. The functions are not equal because they have

different domains. h(x) is defined for all non-

zero real numbers, while k(x) is defined for all

real numbers.

4. The functions are equal. For x = 3 we have

f(3) = 2 and g(3) = 3 1 = 2, hence f(3) = g(3).

For x 3, we have

2

4 3 ( 3)( 1)

( ) 1.

3 3

x x x x

f x x

x x

+

= = =

Note that we can cancel the x 3 because we are

assuming x 3 and so x 3 0. Thus for

x 3 f(x) = x 1 = g(x).

f(x) = g(x) for all real numbers and they have the

same domains, thus the functions are equal.

5. The denominator is zero when x = 0. Any other

real number can be used for x.

Answer: all real numbers except 0

ISM: Introductory Mathematical Analysis Section 2.1

6. Any real number can be used for x.

Answer: all real numbers

7. For 3 x to be real, x 3 0, so x 3.

Answer: all real numbers 3

8. For 1 z to be real, z 1 0, so z 1. We

exclude values of z for which 1 0, z = so

z 1 = 0, thus z = 1.

Answer: all real numbers > 1

9. Any real number can be used for z.

Answer: all real numbers

10. We exclude values of x for which

45. Weekly excess of income over expenses is

6500 4800 = 1700.

After t weeks the excess accumulates to 1700t.

Thus the value of V of the business at the end of

t weeks is given by V = f(t) = 25,000 + 1700t.

46. Depreciation at the end of t years is

0.02t(30,000), so value V of machine is

V = f(t) = 30,000 0.02t(30,000), or

V = f(t) = 30,000(1 0.02t).

47. Yes; for each input q there corresponds exactly

one output, 1.25q, so P is a function of q. The

dependent variable is P and the independent

variable is q.

49. The function can be written as q = 48p.

At $8.39 per pound, the coffee house will supply

q = 48(8.39) = 402.72 pounds per week.

At $19.49 per pound, the coffee house will

supply q = 48(19.49) = 935.52 pounds per week.

Principles in Practice 2.5

1. Let y = the amount of money in the account.

Then, after one month,

y = 7250 (1 600) = $6650, and after two

months y = 7250 (2 600) = $6050. Thus, in

general, if we let x = the number of months

during which Rachel spends from this account,

y = 7250 600x. To identify the x-intercept, we

set y = 0 and solve for x.

y = 7250 600x

0 = 7250 600x

600x = 7250

1

12

12

x =

The x-intercept is

1

12 ,0

12

.

Therefore, after 12 months and approximately

2.5 days Rachel will deplete her savings. To

identify the y-intercept, we set x = 0 and solve

for y.

y = 7250 600x

y = 7250 600(0)

y = 7250

The y-intercept is (0, 7250).

Therefore, before any months have gone by,

Rachel has $7250 in her account.

2. Let y = the cost to the customer and let

x = the number of rides he or she takes. Since the

cost does not change, regardless of the number

of rides taken, the equation y = 24.95 represents

this situation. The graph of y = 24.95 is a

horizontal line whose y-intercept is (0, 24.95).

Since the line is parallel to the x-axis, there is no

x-intercept.

3. The formula relating distance, time, and speed is

d = rt, where d is the distance, r is the speed, and

t is the time. Let x = the time spent biking (in

hours). Then, 12x = the distance traveled. Brett

bikes 12 2.5 = 30 miles and then turns around

and bikes the same distance back to the rental

shop. Therefore, we can represent the distance

from the turn-around point at any time x as

3012x . Similarly, the distance from the rental

shop at any time x can be represented by the

function 30 3012 y x = .

4. If t = the age of the child, then f(t) = the height

of the child at any age t. The height and age are

linearly related such that f(8) = 50.6. Since f(t) is

a linear function it has the form f(t) = at + b.

Since the height changes by 2.3 inches per year,

a = 2.3. Then,

f(t) = at + b

f(8) = 2.3(8) + b

50.6 = 18.4 + b

Thus, f(t) = 2.3t + 32.2 is a function that

describes the height of the child at age t.

f(x) = ax + b

2

( ) 16 32 8 h t t t = + + ,

a = 16, b = 32, and c = 8. Since a < 0, the

parabola opens downward. The x -coordinate of

quantity produced q, we obtain

r = pq

r = (6 0.003q)q

6 0.003 r q q =

We note that this is a quadratic function with

a = 0.003, b = 6, and c = 0. Since a < 0, the

graph of the function is a parabola that opens

downward, and r is maximum at the vertex

33. Let x = number of calculators produced at Exton,

and y = number of calculators produced at

Whyton. The total cost of Exton is 7.50x + 7000,

and the total cost at Whyton is 6.00y + 8800.

Thus 7.50x + 7000 = 6.00y + 8800. Also,

x + y = 1500. This gives the system

7.50 7000 6.00 8800. (2)

From Eq. (1), y = 1500 x. Substituting in Eq.

7.50x + 7000 = 6.00(1500 x) + 8800

7.50x + 7000 = 9000 6x + 8800

13.5x = 10,800

x = 800

Thus y = 1500 x = 1500 800 = 700.

Therefore 800 calculators must be made at the

Exton plant and 700 calculators at the Whyton

plant.

From the first equation, x = 100 2z.

Substituting in the second equation gives

0.50z = 20

z = 40

From x = 100 2z, x = 100 2(40) = 20. From

y = z, y = 40. Thus, 20, 40, and 40 lb of $2.20,

$2.30, and $2.60 per lb coffee must be used,

respectively.

Substituting in Eq. (1) gives

100,000x + 4500 = 8500, 100,000x = 4000, or

x = 0.04. Thus the rate is 4% on the first

Adding 2 times Eq. (1) to Eq. (3) gives

r + 3l = 700, from which

r + 3(200) = 700,

r = 100

From Eq. (1) we have c + 100 + 200 = 400, or

c = 100. Thus 100 chairs, 100 rockers and

200 chaise lounges should be made.

Subtracting 0.07 times Eq. (1) from Eq. (2)

0.01y + 0.02z = 380. Letting z = 13,000, we

have 0.01y + 0.02(13,000) = 380

0.01y = 120

y = 12,000

From Eq. (1),

x + 12,000 + 13,000 = 35,000

x = 10,000

The investments are $10,000 at 7%, $12,000 at

8%, $13,000 at 9% (later 10%).

41. Let x = number of skilled workers employed,

Since b = a + 5, substituting in Eq. (2) gives

60a = 9825

a = 163.75

b = a + 5, b = 163.75 + 5 = 168.75. Thus

25(163.75) = 4093.75 gallons are pumped from

A, and 35(168.75) = 5906.25 gallons are pumped

from B.

Method 2. Let a = number of gallons from A,

and let b = number of gallons from B. Then

a + b = 10,000. The number of minutes the

pump on A operates is

To break even, we have

19. Let q = break-even quantity. Since total revenue

is 5q, we have 5q = 200,000, which yields

q = 40,000. Let c be the variable cost per unit.

Then at the break even point,

Tot. Rev. = Tot. Cost

= Variable Cost + Fixed Cost.

Thus

200,000 = 40,000c + 40,000

160,000 = 40,000c

c = $4.

20. Let q = number of pairs sold.

Total Revenue = 2.63q

Total Cost = 0.85q + 0.96q + 0.32q + 70,500

At the break-even point,

Total Revenue = Total cost, or

2.63q = 0.85q + 0.96q + 0.32q + 70,500

Solving for q gives

2.63q = 2.13q + 70,500 or 0.5q = 70,500

q = 141,000

have 1310 = 0 L + b, or b = 1310. So

R = aL + 1310. Since R = 1460 when L = 2,

1460 = a(2) + 1310

150 = 2a

a = 75

Thus R = 75L + 1310.

R = 75(1) + 1310 = 1385 milliseconds.

c. Since R = 75L + 1310, the slope is 75. The

Principles in Practice 4.1

1. The shapes of the graphs are the same. The value

of A scales the value of any point by A.

2. If P = the amount of money invested and

r = the annual rate at which P increases, then

after 1 year, the investment has grown from P to

P + Pr = P(1 + r). Since r = 0.10, the factor by

which P increases for the first year is

1 + r = 1 + 0.1 = 1.1. Similarly, during the

second year the investment grows from P(1 + r)

to (1 ) [ (1 )] P r r P r + + +

2

(1 ) P r = + . Again, since

r = 0.10, the multiplicative increase for the

second year is

2 2

(1 0.10) (1.1) 1.21. + = = This

pattern will continue as shown in the table.

Thus, the growth of the initial investment is

If we graph the multiplicative increase as a

3. If V = the value of the car and

r = the annual rate at which V depreciates, then

after 1 year the value of the car is

V rV = V(1 r). Since r = 0.15, the factor by

which V decreases for the first year is

1 r = 1 0.15 = 0.85. Similarly, after the

second year the value of the car is

2

(1 ) [ (1 )] (1 ) V r r V r V r = . Again, since

r = 0.15, the multiplicative decrease for the

second year is

33. Let P = the amount of plastic recycled and let

r = the rate at which P increases each year. Then

after the first year, the amount of plastic

recycled, increases from P to P + rP = P(1 + r),

since r = 0.3, the factor by which P increases for

the first year, is 1 + r = 1 + 0.3 = 1.3. Similarly,

during the second year, the amount of plastic

recycled increases from P(1 + r) to

P(1 + r) +

[ (1 )] (1 ) r P r P r + = + . Again, since

y = ln(4x) = ln 4 + ln x. If f(x) = ln x, then

y = ln(4x) = f(x) + ln 4. Thus the graph of

y = ln(4x) is the graph of y = ln x shifted

ln 4 units upward.

ln(6x) = ln(3 2x) = ln 3 + ln(2x).

If f(x) = ln(2x), then y = ln(6x) = f(x) + ln 3.

Thus, the graph of y = ln(6x) is the graph of

y = ln(2x) shifted ln 3 units upward.

By graphing S as a function of the nominal rate

r, we find that when r = 0.049, S = 600. Thus, at

the nominal rate of 4.9% compounded daily, the

initial amount of $518 will grow to $600 after

3 years.

By graphing S as a function of n, we find that

when n = 2571, S = 750. Thus, it will take

years, or 7 years and 16 days for

$520 to grow to $750 at the nominal rate of

5.2% compounded daily.

Let n = 12 when r = 0.11:

nominal rate r = 11% is compounded monthly,

the effective rate is 11.57%

Hence in the second case when the nominal rate

effective rate of interest. To find the better

investment, compare the compound amounts, S

b. After one year the accumulated amount of

the investment is

0.055

10,000 $10,565.41 e . The payoff

for the loan (including interest) is

1000 + 1000(0.08) = $1080. The net return

is 10,565.41 1080 = $9485.41.

Thus, this strategy is better by

9485.41 9458.51 = $26.90.

2. Let a = 500 and let r = 1.5. Then, the number of

bacteria at the end of each minute for the first six

minutes is 500(1.5),

2

500(1.5) ,

3

500(1.5) ,

4

500(1.5) ,

6

500(1.5) , or 750, 1125,

1688, 2531, 3797, 5695.

3. The total vertical distance traveled in the air after

n bounces is equal to 2 times the sum of heights.

If a = 6 and

2

r = , then when the ball hits the

ground for the twelfth time, n = 12 and the

distance traveled in the air is

4. The amount of profit earned in the first two

years is the sum of the monthly profits.

Let a = 2000,

r = 1.1, and n = 24.

Thus, the company earned $176,994.65 in the

first two years.

5. Let R = 500 and let n = 72. Then, the present

value A of the annuity is given by

72

1 (1 ) 1 (1 )

500

n

r r

A R

r r

+ +

= =

By graphing A as a function of r, we find that

when r 0.005167, A = 30,000. Thus, if the

present value of the annuity is $30,000, the

monthly interest rate is 0.5167%, and the

nominal rate is 12(0.005167) = 0.062 or 6.2%.

50,000

6. Since the man pays $2000 for 6 years and $3500

for 8 years, we can consider the payments to be

an annuity of $3500 for 14 years minus an

annuity of $1500 for 6 years so that the first 24

payments are $2000 each. Thus, the present

value is

56 0.015 24 0.015

3500 1500

3500(37.705879) 1500(20.030405)

101,924.97

a a

=

Thus, the present value of the payments is

$101,925. Since the man made an initial down

payment of $20,000, list price was

101,925 + 20,000 = $121,925.

By Graphing A as a function of R, we find that

when R = 723.03, A = 15,000. Thus the monthly

payment is $723.03 if the present value of the

annuity is $15,000.

20,000

8. Find the annuity due. The man makes an initial

payment of $1200 followed by an ordinary

annuity of $1200 for 11 months. Thus, let

R = 1200, n = 11, and

0.068

12

r = . The present

value of the annuity due is

0.068

11

12

1200 1 1200(1 10.635005) a

+ +

13,962.01

Thus, he should pay $13,962.01.

9. Let R = 2000 and let r = 0.057. Then, the value

of the IRA at the end of 15 years, when n = 15,

is given by

Thus, at the end of 15 years the IRA will be

worth $45,502.06.

10. Let R = 2000 and let r = 0.057. Since the

deposits are made at the beginning of each year,

the value of the IRA at the end of 15 years is

given by

The curves intersect at 0.0590. The yield is 5.9%.

3. The normal yield curve assumes a stable economic climate. By contrast, if investors are expecting a drop in

interest rates, and with it a drop in yields from future investments, they will gladly give up liquidity for long-term

investment at current, more favorable, interest rates. T-bills, which force the investor to find a new investment in

a short time, are correspondingly less attractive, and so prices drop and yields rise.

Principles in Practice 6.1

1. There are 3 rows, one for each source. There are two columns, one for each raw material. Thus, the size of the

matrix is 3 2. Alternatively, she could use a 2 3 matrix.

2. The first column consists of 1s each representing the 1 hour needed for each phase of project 1. The second

column consists of 2s for each phase of project 2 and so on. In general the nth column will consist of 2

n

s, each

representing the 2

n

hours needed for each phase of project n. The time-analysis matrix is as follows.

1 2 4 8 16

Problems 6.1

1. a. The size is the number of rows by the columns. Thus A is 2 3, B is 3 3, C is 3 2, D is 2 2, E is 4 4,

F is 1 2, G is 3 1, H is 3 3, and J is 1 1.

b. A square matrix has the same number of rows as columns. Thus the square matrices are B, D, E, H, and J.

c. An upper triangular matrix is a square matrix where all entries below the main diagonal are zeros. Thus H

and J are upper triangular. A lower triangular matrix is a square matrix where all entries above the main

diagonal are zeros. Thus D and J are lower triangular.

d. A row vector (or row matrix) has only one row. Thus F and J are row vectors.

e. A column vector (or column matrix) has only one column. Thus G and J are column vectors.

2. A has 4 rows and 4 columns. Thus the order of A is 4.

3.

a is the entry in the 2nd row and 1st column, namely 6.

a is the entry in the 4th row and 4th column, namely 0.

8.

55

a is the entry in the 5th row and 5th column. But A has only 4 rows and 4 columns. Thus

55

a does not exist.

9. The main diagonal entries are the entries on the diagonal extending from the upper left corner to the lower right

corner. Thus the main diagonal entries are 7, 2, 1, 0.

7 = 7, 7 = 7, and 2y = y. Now 2y = y yields y = 0.

Thus from 2x = y we get 2x = 0, so x = 0. The

solution is x = 0, y = 0.

29. a. From J, the entry in row 3 (super-duper)

and column 2 (white) is 7. Thus in January,

7 white super-duper models were sold.

b. From F, the entry in row 2 (deluxe) and

column 3 (blue) is 3. Thus in February,

3 blue deluxe models were sold.

c. The entries in row 1 (regular) and column

4 (purple) give the number of purple regular

models sold. For J the entry is 2 and for F

the entry is 4. Thus more purple regular

models were sold in February.

d. In both January and February, the deluxe

blue models (row 2, column 3) sold the

same number of units (3).

e. In January a total of 0 + 1 + 3 + 5 = 9

deluxe models were sold. In February a total

of

2 + 3 + 3 + 2 = 10 deluxe models were sold.

Thus more deluxe models were sold in

February.

f. In January a total of 2 + 0 + 2 = 4 red

widgets were sold, while in February a total

of 0 + 2 + 4 = 6 red widgets were sold. Thus

more red widgets were sold in February.

g. Adding all entries in matrix J yields that a

total of 38 widgets were sold in January.

30. The sums of the entries in the columns are 680,

710, 1510, and 6690. The sum of the entries in

output by (0.20)(90) = 18 units and industry C

has to increase output by (0.20)(120) = 24 units.

All other producers have to increase it by

(0.20)(420) = 84 units.

31. By equating entries we find that x must satisfy

2

2000 2001 x x + = and

2

x x = .

The second equation implies that x < 0. From the

first equation,

2

2000 2001 0 x x + = ,

(x + 2001)(x 1) = 0, so x = 2001.

8. D is 4 3 and E is 3 2, so DE is 4 2;

4 2 = 8 entries.

9. E is 3 2 and C is 2 5, so EC is 3 5;

10. D is 4 3 and B is 3 1, so DB is 4 1;

4 1 = 4 entries.

11. F is 2 3 and B is 3 1, so FB is 2 1;

2 1 = 2 entries.

12. B is 3 1 and C is 2 5. Because the number of

columns of B does not equal the number of rows

of C, BC is not defined.

13. E is 3 2,

T

E is 2 3, and B is 3 1, so

T

EE B is 3 1; 3 1 = 3 entries.

14. A is 2 3 and E is 3 2, so AE is 2 2. Thus

E(AE) is 3 2; 3 2 = 6 entries.

15. E is 3 2. F is 2 3 and B is 3 1, so FB is

2 1. Thus E(FB) is 3 1; 3 1 = 3 entries.

16. Both F and A are 2 3, so F + A is 2 3.

Because B is 3 1, (F + A)B is 2 1; 2 1 = 2

entries.

Letting d = r, we get the general solution of the

system:

a = 3r

b = 2r + 1000

c = r + 500

d = r

Note that a, b, c, and d cannot be negative, given

the context, hence 0 r 500. One specific

solution is when r = 250, then a = 750, b = 500,

c = 250, and d = 250.

Problems 6.4

1. The first nonzero entry in row 2 is not to the

right of the first nonzero entry in row 1, hence

not reduced.

2. Reduced.

3. Reduced.

4. In row 2, the first nonzero entry is in column 2,

but not all other entries in column 2 are zeros,

hence not reduced.

5. The first row consists entirely of zeros and is not

below each row containing a nonzero entry,

hence not reduced.

6. The first nonzero entry of row 2 is to the left of

the first nonzero entry of row 1, hence not

reduced.

F does not reduce to I so F is not invertible.

4. Let x be the number of shares of A, y be the

number of shares of B, and z be the number of

shares of C. We get the following equations

from the given conditions.

50x + 20y + 80z = 500,000

x = 2z

0.13(50x) + 0.15(20y) + 0.10(80z)

= 0.12(50x + 20y + 80z)

Simplify the first equation.

5x + 2y + 8z = 50,000

Simplify the second equation.

x 2z = 0

Simplify the third equation.

6.5x + 3y + 8z = 6x + 2.4y + 9.6z

0.5x + 0.6y 1.6z = 0

5x + 6y 16z = 0

Thus, we solve the following system of

equations.

x 2z = 0

5x + 6y 16z = 0

5x + 2y + 8z = 50,000

z = 2y

Simplify the first equation.

6x + 8x + 3z = 50,000

Simplify the second equation.

9.6x + 9.6y + 2.7z = 8.712x + 11.616y + 4.356z

0.888x 2.016y 1.656z = 0

888x 2016y 1656z = 0

111x 252y 207z = 0

Simplify the third equation.

2y z = 0

Thus we solve the following system of equations.

6x + 8y + 3z = 50,000

111x 252y 207z = 0

2y z = 0

Principles in Practice 7.1

1. Let x = the number of type A magnets and

y = the number of type B magnets.

The cost for producing x type A magnets and y

type B magnets is 50 + 0.90x + 0.70y. The

revenue for selling x type A magnets and y type

B magnets is 2.00x + 1.50y.

Revenue is greater than cost when

2x + 1.5y > 50 + 0.9x + 0.7y.

0.8y > 1.1x + 50

y > 1.375x + 62.5

Sketch the dashed line y = 1.375x + 62.5 and

shade the half plane above the line. In order to

make a profit, the number of magnets of types A

and B must correspond to an ordered pair in the

shaded region. Also, to take reality into account,

both x and y must be positive (negative numbers

of magnets are not feasible).

2. Since negative numbers of cameras cannot be

sold, x 0 and y 0. Selling at least 50

cameras per week corresponds to x + y 50.

Selling twice as many of type I as of type II

corresponds to

x 2y. The system of inequalities is

The feasible region shown has corners

A = (0, 10), B = (0, 30), C = (15, 30),

D = (25, 20), E = (25, 0), and F = (10, 0).

Evaluating the cost function at the corners gives

Z(A) = 1050 6(0) 6(10) = 990

Z(B) = 1050 6(0) 6(30) = 870

Z(C) = 1050 6(15) 6(30) = 780

Z(D) = 1050 6(25) 6(20) = 780

Z(E) = 1050 6(25) 6(0) = 900

Z(F) = 1050 6(10) 6(0) = 990

The minimum value of Z is 780 which occurs at

all points on the line segment joining C and D.

This is x = (1 t)(15) + t(25) = 15 + 10t and

y = (1 t)(30) + t(20) = 30 10t for 0 t 1.

Thus, ship 10t + 15 TV sets from C to A,

10t + 30 TV sets from C to B,

25 (10t + 15) = 10t + 10 TV sets from D to A,

and 30 (10t + 30) = 10t TV sets from D to B,

for 0 t 1. The minimum cost is $780.

Z = 60x + 45y + 50(7 x) + 35(4 y)

the warehouse in Concord has only 6 cars,

x + y 6.

Similarly, since the Dublin warehouse has only 8

cars, 7 x + 4 y 8 or 3 x + y.

The feasible region shown has corners A = (0, 3),

B = (0, 4), C = (2, 4), D = (6, 0), and E = (3, 0).

Evaluating the cost function at the corners gives

Z(A) = 490 + 10(0) + 10(3) = 520

Z(B) = 490 + 10(0) + 10(4) = 530

Z(C) = 490 + 10(2) + 10(4) = 550

Z(D) = 490 + 10(6) + 10(0) = 550

Z(E) = 490 + 10(3) + 10(0) = 520

The minimum value of Z is 520 which occurs at

all points on the line segment joining A and E.

This is x = (1 t)(0) + t(3) = 3t and

y = (1 t)(3) + t(0) = 3t + 3 for 0 t 1.

Thus have 3t cars delivered from Concord to

Atherton, 3t + 3 delivered from Concord to

Berkeley, 7 3t delivered from Dublin to

Atherton, and 4 (3t + 3) = 3t + 1 delivered

from Dublin to Berkeley, for 0 t 1. The

minimum cost is $520.

2

x is a nonbasic variable and its indicator is 0,

(1 t)0 + 6t = 6t of device 2, and none of device

21. Method 1. The usual sample space has 36

outcomes, where the event

{at least one 1}={no 1's} , and the event

no 1s occurs in 5 5 = 25 ways. Thus

Method 2. From the usual sample space, we find

that the reduced sample space for at least one

(1, 3), (1, 4), (1, 5), (1, 6), (2, 1), (3, 1), (4, 1),

Thus P(two 1s | at least one 1) =

22. Method 1. The reduced sample space, having 6

outcomes, is {(5, 1), (5, 2), (5, 3), (5, 4), (5, 5),

(5, 6)}, where, in each pair, the outcome 5 on the

red die is given first. Two pairs have a sum

greater than 9, namely (5, 5) and

(5, 6). Thus

Method 2. The usual sample space has 36

23. The usual sample space consists of ordered pairs

(R, G), where R = no. on red die and G = no. on

green die. Now, n(green is even) = 6 3 = 18,

because the red die can show any of six numbers

and the green any of three: 2, 4, or 6. Also,

(total of 7 green even) n
